Big Chip Is A Big Pet

If you haven't met this handsome 10-year-old before, click
here to read his story--and to learn the proper way to hug a sheep. By the way, after all these years Big Chip still demands a hug every time he sees me. And who's going to say no to that face? This is one sweet fellow, but he's serious when it comes to getting hugged.

  1. Awesome to see Big Chip. What a handsome boy. I love the white on his face is that from being older or has he always had it?

  2. Hello Chip! Hugs from Maryland :)

  3. The Chippers have a charmed life. I have a black lab who will hug in the same fashion. But see always is the one that starts the hug and so I am often thrown onto the ground. Once she came up behind me and hugged me at the back of my knees. Yes, I fell over her backwards head first.

  4. Susan - Given the opportunity, you & I would have the world's biggest flock of wethers - Big Chip looks like a sweetie - BTW, I know how you feel about tomatoes - I feel the same way about green beans about now LOL - Tina

  5. I'll hug him. Send 'em on over!!

  6. What is considered "old" for a sheep?

  7. Hi Big Chip! I'd give you a hug any time!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
